1 John 3:22--4:6
Psalm 2:7-8,10-11
Matthew 4:12-17,23-25


A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:

What a beautiful first reading from St. John the Evangelist! How simply he explains God's place in our lives and exactly what our response should be to the Divine knowledge given us by Jesus. John teaches us that we who believe, we who have allowed faith to grow within, are the "little ones" upon whom God's favor rests. With this gift comes our responsibility to interiorly embrace the spirit of the Gospel message. By becoming receptive and taking on that interior disposition within our hearts, we shall act then accordingly when the opportunity presents itself. This will become the "sacrament of the moment" presenting itself to us that we might become the loving hands and heart of Jesus to whomever we meet each day.

O Jesus, meek and humble of heart, please make my heart like unto thine. Amen. Amen.
